An ozone generator is a device that generates gaseous ozone for use in deodorization, sterilization, and infection control. It is also called an ozone generator or ozonizer.
Ozone is a gaseous allotrope of oxygen consisting of three oxygen atoms. It is a volatile molecule that gradually decomposes to oxygen at room temperature. Specific gravity is 1.54 times that of air and three times that of oxygen, and its solubility in water is about ten times that of oxygen.
Ozone has a wide range of effects, including sterilization, deodorization, decolorization, and oxidation, and its oxidizing power is second only to fluorine in the natural world.
Ozone is a toxic gas with a distinctive odor and has been confirmed to have adverse effects on the human body depending on its concentration. The Japan Society for Occupational Health has set the allowable concentration as a working environment standard of 0.1 ppm (0.2mg/m3).
Because ozone is a highly oxidizing gas, ozonator & ozone generators are used to remove mold, bacteria, viruses, and organic matter. Since ozone has a high solubility in water and is effective in sterilizing and deodorizing when dissolved, it is used in water treatment.
Ozone has the advantage that it does not remain in the water because it becomes an oxygen molecule through self-decomposition and can be used in any location because its raw material is air or oxygen. Therefore, ozonator & ozone generators demonstrate their efficacy in various industrial fields such as water & sewage treatment, sterilization & deodorization in medical, residential, and food manufacturing processes, and treatment & storage of raw materials for food.
Ozone generators produce ozone by discharge, ultraviolet, and electrolysis methods. Of these, the most common method used in industrial applications is the silent discharge method, which is a type of discharge method.
In the discharge type ozonator & ozone generators, oxygen is converted to ozone by electrons produced in a discharge filled with an oxygen-containing gas. Ozone is generated when electrons collide with oxygen molecules and break them down into oxygen atoms, which then bond.
Discharge ozonator & ozone generators include silent discharge, corona discharge, and creepage discharge. They come in all sizes and are used in a variety of situations.
The silent discharge type has the highest energy efficiency among existing ozone generators, and the majority of large ozonators & ozone generators use this type. On the other hand, the corona discharge type has low ozone generation efficiency and is generally used for small-scale ozone generators.
The electrolysis type generates ozone by electrolyzing water with a polymer electrolyte membrane between electrodes. Lead dioxide (beta type) is used as the anode electrode to generate oxygen and highly concentrated ozone.
This method produces highly concentrated ozone of 15 to 20% by weight. However, the discharge type is unsuitable for large-scale ozone production because of its higher ozone generation efficiency.
The ultraviolet types are ozonator & ozone generators that generate ozone by irradiating oxygen-containing gases with ultraviolet rays. When oxygen molecules are irradiated with ozone-generating rays, which have the shortest wavelength among ultraviolet rays, the oxygen molecules dissociate to produce oxygen atoms, which combine with other oxygen molecules to generate ozone.
In ozone generation by the ultraviolet type, ozone decomposition reactions occur in parallel, and oxygen atoms produced in the decomposition reactions react with ozone to destroy it. Therefore, the efficiency and amount of ozone generated are low, and it is used for small-scale sterilization.
Ozone is effective in sterilization and decontamination, and households are increasingly considering installing ozonator & ozone generators. On the other hand, ozone can be hazardous to the human body depending on its concentration in the air, so care must be taken when using ozonator & ozone generators.
The most crucial point to note as a danger of ozonator & ozone generators is that they may be used outside the specified scope of application, and the increased ozone concentration in the room may cause adverse effects on the human body. Especially in-home use, where expertise tends to be lacking, the use of ozone generators may be highly hazardous without awareness.
In addition, the assumed concentration is based on the assumption that ozone is spread throughout the room. So, for example, if the ozone concentration is very high near the spray port, there is a risk that the toxicity will increase by that amount because the concentration is very high.
Ozone generators are divided into two categories: commercial and residential. The amount of ozone produced, the air volume, and the environment in which it is used differ entirely between commercial and residential use. When choosing an ozonator & ozone generator, it is necessary to pay close attention to these differences.
The first is the amount of ozone generated, which is more than 200 mg/h for commercial use, which is tens to hundreds of times higher than 0.3 to 5.0 mg/h for home use.
Another is the environment in which they are used. While commercial ozone generators are used in an unattended environment, household ozone generators are designed to be used in a manned environment so that the ozone concentration in the room does not reach dangerous levels.
Unknowingly using a commercial ozonator & ozone generators in the home can result in high ozone concentrations, which can be very dangerous. It is necessary to select the appropriate model for the situation in which it will be used.
